Nationals SS Ian Desmond extends hitting streak to 12 games

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/28/15) Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond went 3 for 5 with a pair of doubles in Wednesday's 3-0 victory over the Cubs. The three-hit performance pushes his current hitting streak up to 12 games.

During the 12-game streak, Desmond is batting .347 (17 for 49) with six doubles, two home runs and seven RBI. After getting off to a rather slow start, the hitting streak has lifted his season batting average up from .225 to .257.

Nationals' Ian Desmond belts fourth home run of the season

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/20/15) Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond went 1 for 4 at the plate in Washington's 3-2 win over the Yankees on Wednesday.

Desmond did his damage in the first inning when he blasted a solo home run off of Adam Warren to center field, his fourth of the season. Desmond, who also struck out twice, is now hitting .244 with 12 RBI in 164 at-bats this season.

Nationals SS Ian Desmond knocks first-inning homer in Tuesday's win

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/19/15) Shortstop Ian Desmond delivered a first-inning home run Tuesday to help get the Nationals past the Yankees.

Desmond also added an RBI single in the fifth inning.

Nationals' Ian Desmond not worried about slow start

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/14/15) Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond has posted a career-low .618 OPS in 2015, but he isn't worried about his slow start, the Washington Post reports.

"I’ve never been someone to set the world on fire early in the season," Desmond said.  "… I feel good. Obviously the numbers aren’t there but I’m a contact hitter. I’ve never been one to walk my way on base. When you’re not getting hits, the numbers aren’t going to be there."

Desmond is just 4 for 24 with eight strikeouts in his last six games.

"For me, in recent days, it’s pitch selection," manager Matt Williams said. "Balls down in the zone that you can’t elevate. That’s why the ball goes on the ground. There was a couple of balls in Arizona that I thought he hit well. … But for Ian, it’s pitch selection. If he stays off the ball that’s up and the ball that’s down, and gets a good one to hit, he has success. That comes quickly, too. A valuable part of our team. He’ll be in there day in and day out, and at some point it’s going to turn. And it’ll turn big for him."

Desmond has hit just .225/.277/.341 with two home runs and seven RBI while producing a career-high groundball rate and a career-low flyball rate.

Nationals' Span sits; Escobar, Desmond move up Sunday

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/10/15) Nationals center fielder Denard Span is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves.

Span has made six straight starts atop the Nationals lineup but will get a breather Sunday. He'll be replaced in center field by Michael Taylor, who is batting eighth.

With Span out, third baseman Yunel Escobar will lead off for the second time this season, while Ian Desmond will jump to the No. 2 spot for just the second time in the last 10 games.

The Nationals are favorites (-160) against the Braves Sunday.
